Rangers | More on Matt Harrison

Updating a previous item, Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back, elbow) was diagnosed with left elbow inflammation after he left his last rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock experiencing numbness in his left hand. Doctors have advised him to shut it down for the rest of the season, although there is nothing structurally wrong with his back, and the team isn't worried about his elbow, either. "It was a significant injury, real surgery and we have every expectation he'll be 100 percent by this offseason and certainly by spring training. We were hoping to have him back this season, but it's not going to happen," manager Ron Washington said.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Harrison and Colby Lewis (hip) are done for the year, it appears that Martin Perez and Alexi Ogando are safe in the starting rotation. The team might look to limit them down the stretch by skipping them, though.
